[Fixed] Lightscreen default screenshot directory issues

Hi, was told to post this here by Chris Morgan.

I decided to try the app and found a few things I thought I'd mention.

AppNamePortable.ini in LightscreenPortable\Other\Source is meant to be LightScreenPortable.ini
I dunno if you'd like to rename that or not.

The default save directory situation confuses me. The first screenshot I took went into C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\VirtualStore. I am not 100% sure what this directory is, but finding that screenshot took me ages.

In order just to save the screenshots to the portable app's data folder I had to put the save as directory in the options as "..\..\Data\snaps". Because even saving it to "Snaps" put it in the LightscreenPortable\App\Lightscreen folder. Is there no way to trick the app into saving into the data folder by default like other portable apps?

Anyway, just thought I'd let you know in case it confuses any other new users. Thanks for portablising it, I personally prefer WinSnap, especially because of it's preview, shadow, and reflection features. So I'm not really worried if you can't/don't make these changes, just hoping to help.

1st issue: AppNamePortable.ini is the correct name for that file. If you wish to use it, you copy it to the app's root directory and rename it.

2nd issue: this is indeed a bug. Please rename the thread subject to start with [BUG] so it enters our bug tracker.

John, if you'd like, I can take this one.

I've updated the subject. Please feel free to update it starting with the current Rev 2, adding in your bug fixes you mentioned before and then fixing this. Thanks!

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
